Rubber caulking is not good. You need high temperature furnace cement for this job. This is availible from Home Depot or a hardware store. Remove as much of the rubber caulking as you can first.

I HAVE A 1995 CHEVROLET CAPRICE CLASSIC, UNDER THE DRIVER SIDE OF CAR IT SMELL OF GAS FUMES.


Gasoline or exhaust fumes? If exhaust, you have a leak. If gasoline smell, tank may be over full and vent may be clogged.

I smell exhaust fumes in the cabin. What could be causing this?


The most common cause is an exhaust leak in the engine compartment near the engine. The exhaust fumes are pulled into the passenger compartment thru the heater vents. Switching to Rec might cut off the intake of air from outside.

Check your local building codes for restrictions. You MUST have the proper exhaust for a gas unit. There may also be flooring and wall requirements that need to be changed.

if inded the smell of exhaust is getting into your car i would suggest not driving it until it is properly checked by a licensed meachanic. it could be entering through your heater/AC blower and in return be fatal if left untouched for a period of time

replace your catalytic convertor. you can go to a smog shop and have them perform a "cat efficiency test" and see what they tell you or simply go to a muffler shop have them install one.
